New nanomaterial-based magnetoelectric sensors for deep brain stimulation

Up to now, the brain's magnetic field is measurable only under technical laboratory conditions. This technique is therefore not feasible in terms of the broader medical use, although it would be significant for diagnosing numerous conditions such as epilepsy and dementia, or even for improving therapies such as deep brain stimulation for treating Parkinson's disease. Researchers have now developed a new type of magnetoelectric sensor, which is intended to allow the use of this important technology in the future.

Making nanotextured glass that's anti-fogging, self-cleaning and free of glare (w/video)

One of the most instantly recognizable features of glass is the way it reflects light. But a new way of creating surface textures on glass, developed by researchers at MIT, virtually eliminates reflections, producing glass that is almost unrecognizable because of its absence of glare - and whose surface causes water droplets to bounce right off, like tiny rubber balls.
